Fight for the Right to Life in Survival Simulator!

Survival Simulator drops you off on a island wearing only your white underwear, but you come surprisingly well equipped outside the caveman style clothing. For example, you have two guns—a revolver and an assault rifle, and two hatchets and a pickax. Your inventory has been loaded to keep you stocked and prepared for the long haul ahead.

Survival Simulator drops you off on a island wearing only your white underwear, but you come surprisingly well equipped outside the caveman style clothing. For example, you have two guns—a revolver and an assault rifle, and two hatchets and a pickax. Your inventory has been loaded to keep you stocked and prepared for the long haul ahead.

The Graphics

In terms of graphics, Survival Simulator looks mediocre at best. In fact, some more varied terrain would help this game along. For example, everywhere you wander on this island feels like the same place you visited before. At first, it doesn’t matter much because you have sensory overload, but after a while, you start to wish you had more variation from the landscape of the game. To be fair, the graphics don’t look bad for a game of this type, but they’re certainly not beautiful.

Enemies in the Game

Like with the landscape, this survival game (wikipedia) needs more variety in the enemies you face. For example, you have wild boars, zombie-like cavemen who attack you relentlessly, and presumably wild chickens on the run. Finding other NPCs is impossible. Chickens will simply run from your attack and wild boars will eventually give up, but God help you if you run across a caveman, and you have a bad aim because he will charge you until you drop dead from the thirst. A little expert advice: Don’t try to take on a caveman with a throwing spear. You will keep missing in Survival Simulator until your spear runs out, and he will keep charging you even after you have no weapons.

Directionless and Lacks Challenge

The game itself feels unfinished because it has no mission, and because you start out with everything you need and next to a base with everything you could craft: an anvil, sleeping bag and campfire, you have almost no need for everything found in your inventory. In fact, it’d be better if they had started you out with nothing so that you had more strategy to go from there. Even if they had only done that, it would’ve been a major improvement to the game.

In truth, Survival Simulator may hold your interest for a half hour, but it probably won’t be too appealing after a couple hours. It needs more improvements to stack up to the other games on the market. That’s why we give this game two-and-a-half stars out of five. It’s not necessarily bad, but it feels undeveloped.

Fans of sniper games can afford to have high standards for their time. With so many entries into the genre, there’s been shockingly few attempts to actually innovate in it.

Dark Dayz: Survive the zombie madness set in a dystopian future

Dark Dayz is a top-down shooter with some adventure game components set during a zombie apocalypse. The graphics in the game have a distinctive style that goes with the world. They are done very well even though everything is two-dimensional. The animations are smooth for both the character, the screen icons and the enemies. Moody music plays in the background and changes to reflect what is happening on the screen. The sound effects are exactly what you would expect from a zombie shooter.

Pixel Warfare v2: Awesome FPS action in Minecraft-inspired Worlds

Pixel Warfare v2 is a multiplayer online first person shooter. It uses a basic lobby matching system. The game differentiates itself from others because it uses the popular pixelated and blocky graphics style found in Minecraft. This gives the game a unique look for a first person shooter although it also takes something away. The pixelated graphics can become confusing. The grid-aligned restrictions of the blocky world create uninteresting or predictable maps. An added problem is that the large pixels can create a confusing mess on the screen making it hard to see your enemies.
